March has flown by, because I did sooo many things this month. I traveled, reconnected to my inner Swiss alter ego, and made all of my friends jealous by not being busy with uni / being busy with voyages.
It’s time to look back on a really good month.
Here are 17 memories I made in March 2017:
1. I traveled as a Swiss tourist for the first time. After being mistaken for being an American, it feels great to say, ‘Oh no, I am Swiss.‘ (Especially in this day and age.)
2. I also traveled all by myself for the first time.
3. I had haggis. It wasn’t that bad, however, it was my only portion of meat this month and quite possibly my last in a long time.
4. On the Isle of Skye, I had an American encounter.
5. I pulled an all-nighter at the Edinburgh airport. That wasn’t as glamorous as I had expected it to be.
6. Surprisingly, I started liking coffee after years of complaining about not liking it. I may have made a mistake, though.
7. I am officially no longer a citizen of Bern, but will be a Swiss citizen forever.
8. I bought a bike. It’s green and fabulous.
9. I met up with so many friends. It felt like I had never left.
10. I visited continent #4: Asia. Didn’t feel very Asian.
11. I rode a camel.
12. In the Dead Sea, I realized painfully I shouldn’t have shaved my legs.
13. In Jerusalem, I experienced what impact religion has.
14. I bought a sign that says ‘Shalom y’all.’ No shame.
15. I legendarily pranked my best friend at Tel Aviv airport by making him believe I was denied leave of Israel.
16. In Bern, I watched the sun set over my favorite city surrounded by blossoming cherry trees and knew I will always come back to this place.
I love Bern with all of my heart: It is my home with my friends and family here, the most beautiful river, my beloved and incomprehensible third language, and sunsets as the one I witnessed this weekend.
17. After a travel intensive month, I am more than ready for my tiny dorm room, my America-obsessed squad, and a new semester doing what I love.
Have a great April!
